Abortion and the Godfather 2

This movie was so hyped to me, that of course it could only disappoint. One thing that was interesting though was the scene in which Micheal Corleone's wife tells him, "It was an abortion. It wasn't a miscarriage. I killed your son. I could never bring another child of yours into this world. I killed him because I know you could never forgive me." And then they proceed to argue about who keeps the children. It's amazing that Francis Ford Coppola, director of the Godfather series, can have his characters loudly proclaim abortion is murder, but the Supreme Court can't. FFC is not known for conservative religious views either. According to recent crimes against mothers, only children wanted by their mothers are humans with a right to live, the rest, even if wanted by fathers, or childless couples eager to adopt a child, the rest don't have that right, they are only tissue. Whims and wishes don't change reality.
If a child is a human and not tissue in some circumstances, a child is a human and not tissue in all circumstances.

It is the sad, shameful truth in our society today, isn't it.

The law in practice also mirrors this dichotomy in logic. Scott Peterson was convicted on two counts of murder - his wife, Lacie, and his son, Conner. The "wantedness" is always linked to the mother, or in this case, the mother's family.
